Description

Discover how to make Sugar-Free Candied Jalapenos using no calorie monkfruit sweetener instead of sugar. They’re sweet and spicy and virtually indistinguishable from the store-bought version.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup Jalapeno peppers, stemmed and sliced 1/4 thick, approximately 8 – 10 peppers
  • 3/4 cup granulated monkfruit sweetener – I prefer the Lakanto brand 
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed or coriander seed (or combo)

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until Jalapenos soften, about 4 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool completely (at least an hour).
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer Jalapenos to a clean glass jar. Pour syrup over peppers to cover the jar leaving 1/2 inch at the top. 
  4. Affix jar lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
  5. Sugar-free Candied Jalapenos can be refrigerated for 2 months.

Notes

  • I like to wear disposable latex gloves when I chop the peppers.
  • If you prefer, you can chop the cooled peppers after step 2 to make a relish.
